Arabic is a difficult but high-demand language that can be an asset in a wide array of careers. Our language courses, taught by native speakers, cultivate the ability to write clearly, listen precisely, speak with fluency, and read critically.
While language is at the Arabic program’s core, a variety of electives complement language acquisition and expose both majors and non-majors to the richness and diversity of Middle Eastern culture and Islamic intellectual history and thought. A full selection of courses in Arabic literature, history, civilization, culture, and religion provide a balanced and integrated approach to the field.
